Remember Mary Poppins where the old woman sat on the steps of St. Paul's Cathedral calling out "Tuppence a bag" for the bird food?  These fingerless gloves I knitted for my mom reminded me so much of that.  I used Eunny Jang's Endpaper Mitts pattern but I just made them black (Mom's preference).  Between the thumb and index finger area I got a bit lost so I improvised.  They turned out ok and I'm fairly proud of them.  

Because Mom has Multiple Sclerosis she gets cold or hot very fast.  These enable her to keep her hands warm and still handle her pills and type as she needs to.

Ah, I've misspelled the word terribly.  I'll correct that now and it should make a whole lot more sense.   Thanks for the catch!

A little technical background on these.  I used #2 DPN's with silk/bamboo yarn.  That stuff is SO soft!  Get some for a small project like this.  The little luxury is worth every penny.

Very nice! I must try some of the yarn you suggested. I just started knitting again after a 13 year break and fingerless gloves were my first project, so I'm checking out everyone else's....ha!ha!
